in my cupboard: brown rice noodles

With my recent interest (ok, borderline obsession) with all things Asian, rice noodles keep showing up in my meals. Whether it’s in pho or a bed for curry, I’m loving all things rice noodles.

Imagine my surprise when I recently found Brown Rice Noodles! I was beyond thrilled (as only a Nutritionist could be) and immediately put them in my cart, knowing I could certainly come up with a way to use them. Like Angharad’s authentic Pad Thai (seen above).

The main difference between the white and brown – besides one version being whole grain and one not –  is really the 4 grams of fiber. The white rice noodles don’t contain any fiber and almost everyone could use a little more fiber in life, so it’s an easy, natural swap. :) Even the pickiest of eaters won’t detect that it’s “healthy!”

The two varieties are Pad Thai (Fettucine) Brown Rice Noodles and Maifun (Angel Hair) Brown Rice Noodles and they are without a doubt, the newest pantry staple of mine!

    I am going to look for these. I love these kind of posts, to introduce me to new products, because I tend to breeze through the store and not always paying attention.

      They should have them at Whole Foods or Coop type places. Now I can’t remember which exact place!! Sorry!

    My family has been eating brown rice noodles for 7-8 years, but I’ve never seen the Annie Chuns brown rice phad thai style noodles! That must be a new product. I can think of a lot of fun ways to use them! I will check the store tomorrow!

    I completely understand that excitement! I’ve just started cooking with rice noodles within the past 6 mo or so and love them. I haven’t seen brown rice noodles yet. I’ll keep my eye out!
